Fear of Fundraising: 
An Essential Overview 
of the Basics

Wednesday, October 24 | 6:30-8:30 pm

$35 (reg. rate) / $25 (WMM partner rate) | Register here


Fundraising for documentaries can be intimidating and even overwhelming for those who are new to it. But without it, even the best film ideas will never be realized. This workshop is designed for filmmakers who are considering a funding proposal, identified a likely project funder or pitched a project to a potential funder or broadcaster. Topics include: proposal writing, grant-seeking from private and government foundations, fundraising from individuals, and targeted appeals through events and on-line solicitations. Attendees will receive an essential packet of fundraising tips and resources. Presented by Tracie Holder, filmmaker, fundraiser and consultant to WMM's Production Assistance Program. 


Special Discounts Available!


WMM Partner Rates are available to WMM Fiscally Sponsored Filmmakers, members of WMM Partner Groups and Friends of WMM. Click here for more information. 


More workshops will be announced throughout the fall - stay tuned for details!

Film Fact:

Twenty one percent (21%) of the top 250 domestic grossing films released in 2007 employed no women directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers, or editors-a 2% increase since 2006. None of these films failed to employ a man in at least one of these roles. -Celluloid Ceiling 2007 Report
